Host Kurt Andersen and special guest New Yorker critic Adam Gopnik discuss why artists, musicians and people from all walks of life choose to recreate artifacts from the past - on canvas, in the concert hall and on the battlefield. Cellist Yo Yo Ma talks about baroque music on original instruments and New Urbanist architect Andres Duany describes creating new towns from the layout of old cities.
